The Messy Middle - Now Open For Enrolment

This is NOT another online
Art Course

This IS an opportunity to experience real change not only in your creative process but also in your life.

And that is because this isn't about techniques and mark making and colour theory, (although there will be a lot of that also), this is about an experience to find the artist that lives within you.

Over 35 days, if you commit to showing up consistently, you will find out more about yourself, what makes you tick, what makes you curious, what inspires you, so that you can put more of YOUR UNIQUE SELF into your work.

We will paint, journal, share, meet online. Some of you will get the opportunity for a hotspot (there will be places open every week to come online with me and get direct coaching for everyones benefit.

35 days filled with painting and prompts, lives, demos, Q&A, mindset, hotspots with LIVE participants every week.

I’ve not seen anyone do it this way before.

Are you ready to put yourself first?

This is an experience you won't want to miss

This is about showing up for 35 days, but that doesn't mean hours and hours every day. Some days will be reflection, some days will be painting, some will be demos by me, and some will be Q&A's.

While I truly believe, the amount you invest will pay huge dividends, I also know that we all have lives that need our attention. On the days that are not "painting days" I still would love for you to do some art - even if it's just 10 minutes.

There will be 10 minute prompts specifically for this, I promise.

No matter where you are in the world, we have you covered

There is something so beautiful about being part of a group that is so connected through our love of art and yet so diverse coming from all over this amazing planet. For this reason I am recording everything, so you can watch in your leisure. For any live Q&As and the Hot Spots, I will make sure I change up the times so it works for everyone at some point during the 35 days.

About DENI RAYNEAU ART

Hi I'm Deni and I'm and Abstract Expressionist Artist from Sydney, Australia. I love what I do and it's crazy that I get to do it every day. I want that for you too.

It wasn’t that long ago that I was stuck in a job I had been doing for so long and I was successful at it, but it brought me no joy. I was in a creative field - but I felt like I was subtracting from the world instead of adding to it. I couldn’t do it any longer but how to pivot. That was 10 years ago. Just the pure intention of wanting to be somewhere that I wasn’t is powerful stuff.

 

The day I changed my instagram, my facebook, my everything to read Artist in occupation, is still etched in my brain. The nervousness, the voices, the imposter syndrome, as well as the excitement, the joy and the knowing, the coming home.

 

You see, Artist is so much more than an occupation - it is a way of being - a way of seeing the world. I already was an artist - way before I started calling myself that - I just didn’t know it yet. We have to be so completely honest - because it shows in our work, we need to reach inside of ourselves and expose the most pure expression of who we are. Its gut wrenching, its challenging and oh so revealing

 

No matter where you are on the path of Artist, you know you want a different life than the norm- you know you walk a unique path. I walk with you. And I hope I can help you travel it with more clarity, confidence and conviction.

It’s why I created The Messy Middle - life feels pretty messy as an artist, the ups and downs and questions and self doubt and the endless paintings that have you questioning if you even know what you are doing. I know this path, its the one I navigate every day. And it brings me so much joy to help others navigate their way along the same path. It’s ultimately a path of self discovery - of why we are here.

 

The Messy Middle can help you at all processes of making art, and it can help you put more of yourself into your work, and ultimately step fully into the Artist you were always going to be.

I have mentored, taught, lead groups and individuals both online and inperson. And it is a honour to see the change happen before my eyes. Sometimes I call myself a witness, sometimes someone who gives permission and sometimes a Fire Starter - someone who ignites the flame under your dreams. Whatever the name for it - I know its my gift and it's my pleasure to serve you.

Testimonials

Deni has the power to expose limiting beliefs and to profoundly shift your thinking with her heart-centered, intuitive, and nonjudgmental approach. She is passionate about helping other artists to get out of their own way and really connect to what lights them up. She has helped me immensely to overcome my fears and imposter syndrome and to truly own that I am an artist!

Kara Jean Estey, Maine, USA

Deni is passionate about bringing the best out of everyone and I believe a lot of this has to do with her honesty….in understanding how deeply afraid of it we really are. Deni inspires us to look within… explore our why…consistently showing up and doing. There are no rules.. no right or wrong.. when Deni says this is no ordinary Art Course … believe me it won’t be. If you are standing on the edge as I was do yourself the biggest favour … jump in and thrive.

Cecilee Georgeson, NSW, Australia

Deni, you have an incredible way of gathering women who couldn’t be more different from each other like our group and making it incredibly cohesive.

You’re magic is in truly “seeing” each of us, our unique strengths and then beautifully reflecting that back. For me there have been a million micro shifts that have powerfully changed my life and my work. I feel incredibly grounded and clear about the work I’m creating and have shed so many layers of “should” and I can’t tell you how amazing that feels.

Jackie Deblasio, Alberta, Canada

Deni has delivered everything that I needed. Which is, a coalescing of my spirit and my creativity.


I have certainly shifted from the beginning in that my self confidence has been strengthened, along with a more assured knowledge of the value of my work.


Deni, you are amazing. You understand and empathise with our diverse personalities and guide us to thoughts and considerations that lead us forward.

Jan Clark, NSW, Australia

I have been painting for 28 years and writing since I could hold a pencil. However, with Deni’s support and magical fire energy, I learned how much more I had to give on both fronts and how to present my creations in a way that is authentically me.

Kristen Ashley, Conneticut, USA

I'm so grateful I found Deni's art classes as she's such a wonderful empathic and knowledgeable teacher.


In my abstract art course with Deni, I had so much excitement and fun throughout the lessons with great people who wanted to explore their creative sides. Deni helped me ‘let go’ and gave me insights on colour, texture, structure and composition. Deni’s guidance on color theory and composition in particular has really helped me. I’ve since been asked to sell a piece!


The class also helped me and the other students get out of our comfort zones - it’s actually not that easy to stop your mind from overthinking. For me, relaxing into the art and simply allowing myself to create lines and marks that were uniquely mine was revelatory. I understood myself a whole lot more.

I highly recommend everyone take an art class to get the brain and body thinking and moving in unique and different ways.

Christiana Knight, NSW, Australia

Deni's process eliminates overthinking, frustration and doubts that all artists face. Her framework stems from the heart and the results are powerful!

Gina Quinlan, California, USA

Absolutely cherish every moment of our classes. What I observed after the 5th session was a shift in my mindset, where I became less concerned about the end result and more immersed in the joy of the creative process, relishing every minute of being fully present in the moment.


Many thanks to Deni for being an incredible artist & an amazing teacher

Reihanah Pourhamedani,  NSW, Australia

OMG Deni, how can I ever thank you enough.


I’m feeling more confident of dealing with areas I want to expand on and areas 

I want to push back & all with your ‘can do’ zen energy.
